So I really wanted to put something together for FTM or FTBF so that they can gain from our BTDT experience.
1- Boppy. I know everyone seems to buy them now but I can't stress how much mine helped me when I was BF after my c-section. I actually combined it with my body pillow for a full wrap around and my life was awesome!
2- A sleep nursing bra- now the one I have is all soft and comfy, so much so I barely even feel it. I love it because I can tuck my nursing pads in over night and be comfortable. (what I use http://www.motherhood.com/Product.asp?Product_Id=925010120&MasterCategory_Id=MC13)
3- Heavy flow nursing pads for nights. Nothing helps express milk faster than lying on your side lol. I swear I was producing milk just to be expressed on my mattress in the few hours of sleep I got.
4- quilted changing pads with the plastic ceners. Again I appear to want to nurse my mattress for a year as well so I would slip one of these puppies under my sheet where my chest rests to save my mattress. Also great if you co sleep and nurse the baby. A little dribble from the mouth doesn't have to become an ugly stain on your mattress. (here is what I use http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3368919)
HTH hope I can learn something new this time around!
